Amiodarone Injury Lawsuit Claims
If you suffer from conditions such as ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, you may have been prescribed a drug by the name of amiodarone. This antiarrhythmic drug is intended to help regulate heartbeat and, by extension, act as a potentially life-saving intervention. While the benefits of amiodarone are not in dispute, it may increase the risk of several serious complications.
Liver failure, pulmonary toxicity, blindness and thyroid complications are included among the potentially permanent and even fatal adverse effects associated with amiodarone. If you have experienced further health problems and suspect they are the result of prescribed amiodarone use, you have the right to pursue legal redress.
The Harman Law Firm can offer legal representation if you have suffered needlessly from adverse effects after taking amiodarone as prescribed. We are passionate about fighting for justice on behalf of clients from all walks of life. When you have suffered increased ill health from drugs such as amiodarone, which are supposed to improve your quality of life, seek representation from an experienced lawyer in Atlanta, Georgia.
Known Complications and Side Effects of Amiodarone
Electrical impulses can affect the functions of the body in many positive ways. However, the same electrical pulses that benefit patients with heart conditions, such as ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, may have detrimental effects on other bodily functions.
Amiodarone is designed to change the electrical impulses that are concerned with regulating heartbeat. Adverse effects occur when amiodarone also causes undesirable alterations of electrical pulses in other areas of the body. There are several potentially serious or even fatal adverse effects that prescribed users of amiodarone may experience, including:
- Pulmonary fibrosis
- Visual impairment or blindness
- Liver failure
- Thyroid failure
- Increased arrhythmia
